government. the american people who count the most call president obama's handling of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch. he cited the president's stance on climate change as the major reason. he writes, quote, one believes a woman's right to choose should be protected for future generations. one does not. that difference, given the likelihood of supreme court vacancies, weighs heavily on my decision. one recognizes marriage equality as consiste
christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting all the attention, but it's great. >> he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read "the new york post" because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton, and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt romney. >> when she was declared the victor, it was over. >> florida may be too far a bridge for barack obama, but by putting bill clinton and all the things you mentioned, it means the romney campaign has to pay attention to it. >> let's talk about "the washington post" editorial today because it gets to the question of fouling. of break
's sterling bipartisan work on tropical storm sandy. i never saw what came about last night, this powerful swing of support to the president. not just him but his party in senate races across the country. our question tonight, what happened? but i can't begin our usual political discussion tonight without a strong sad personal note. i was on last night for ten hours straight from 5:00 in the evening till 3:00 in the morning. a few minutes to 3:00 i said something terrible. i said that i was glad about the coming of tropical storm sandy because of its impact on this national campaign. it was a terrible thing to say, period. i can say it was because i was tired but the fact is i wasn't thinking of the horrible mess this storm has made of people's lives up here in new york and elsewhere. it's not until you read the local newspapers that you know the horror this has reeked on people's lives. very good people's lives. i grew up in the south jersey shore. i have relatives living there still. i failed to see the damage down in new jersey, staten island and other places around here. it is truly a
think part of this has to do with he wasn't able to make a closing sale in the last week with sandy. there was some evidence before sandy hit that he had sort of was peaking and maybe the president was starting making his comeback in some of these cases before sandy hit. but then it sort of froze things with the trajectory of the president with a little bit of momentum and romney stalling. but i go back. it's funny you bring it up. businessmen when they run for office get a halo effect with swing voters. particularly independents. there's this businessman halo. i've heard consultants tell me about it from the republican and democratic side. the trick is how quickly does that halo go away? for a long time the obama campaign had beaten the living daylights out of romney's business background to make it so that he never got it. the denver debate gave it back to him again. right? sort of brought it back and he was doing well with that group of swing voters. now where are these? i was stunned in our wall street journal poll when you look at it in the up for grabs voters. they look like t
't have said it. >> i commend you for it. i want tong sandy up for a reason because there's a lot of whisperimoives in the romney campaign, oh, if it wasn't for sandy. that is not -- look at -- what happened in the state of florida, would have happened if the election had been september 6th, october 6th or november 6th. this was structural. this was demographic. this had nothing t do with any issue. no auto bailout. no sandy. no any other effects. and so any other excuse that some republicans make is whistling past their grave yards. >> you accept it's more about demographics, more latino10%,lm. a pretty good showing among white voters, about 39, about the levels of t five cycles. >> well, i mean, he dropped a litt 43% of the -- >> before him. >> yeah, around where gore and kerry were. you know, they were -- the peopleou mentioned david plouffe, jim mussina and jim axelrod -- particularly mussina and plouffe, i wrote about this, they saw this as a contest between economics and demographics. the economics were going to be a headwind for president obama and the only way to win was
of a swing back toward president obama. one thing i will say about the storm, about sandy is that president obama is going to be continuing to get positive national media coverage this week, and that could help independents swing back his direction. the thing i'll tell you about being on the ground here in ohio, chris, is that mitt romney is getting pounded by the local press in northern ohio for that chrysler ad that he's been running, and it hasn't come off the air yet. it hasn't come off radio yet either. >> has anybody said -- erin, has anybody said it's an honest ad in the objective media? anybody said it's an honest ad? >> certainly not the media in northern ohio, not the toledo papers, the akron papers, the cleveland papers. they are all pounding mitt romney for that. and here's the thing, chris. northern ohio, especially cleveland and toledo, will go very heavily for president obama. cincinnati, where i am sitting right now, will go heavily for mitt romney. what we need to watch on election night is columbus, where franklin county is, because we've been seeing the romney campaign ca
's happening. andrew quou he know plans to ask for $30 billion in federal aid to rebuild after sandy. funds would be used for you power grid improvements and fuel upgrades. leon pa net dnetta says the oba administration is close to a decision on troop levels after 2014. and israeli tanks fired in syria for a second day after a motor shell fell into israeli controlled territory. back to "hardball." ♪ >>> welcome back to "hardball." over the past year we've shown you scores of political ads running the gamut from morgan freeman's dulcet tones at the end of the election cycle to the ominous voices warning of newt gingrich and rick perry presidencies during the election. one ad seems to have a lasting and damaging effect on mitt romney's chances. that ad, a low-budget spot produced for the obama super pac priorities usa, framed the narrative of mitt romney as a heartless corporate tycoon without a care for the working man. jane mayer covers politics for "the new yorker," and she has a terrific piece on the ad in this week's magazine, and joy reid is managing editor of the grio. let's begin wi

"the washington post" sari horwitz is reporting on this as well as bart gelman. this is a huge story. i want sari to give us a sense of the public impact of this thing. i mean, it's getting more like, i guess, the kardashian story, life among these people with mrs. kelley her
. they were blaming chris christie for working with obama during hurricane sandy. now they're blaming romney for dancing with him. the strict orthodox side of the republican party are blaming the candidate himself for giving away their virtue. ed rendell is the former governor of pennsylvania and matt kiby is the president of freedom works. this is the most unusual pairing, you and matt kiby, governor. you of the northeast establishment, a moderate governor of pennsylvania and here is matt railing at the ramparts against all you represent. this should be interesting. the right fights back. since the election a lot of republicans soul searching has focused on the need to broaden the political base of the republican party. fiscal and social conservatives are saying that's the wrong message. the correct takeaway they say from the election is that the party was too moderate. here is tea party favorite ted cruz, the senator elect from texas. let's watch him. >> inevitably there are these mandarins in politics who give the voice, don't show any contrast, don't rock the boat. so by the third debate
to clean up this mess from sandy. once living in the secular real world, off in the ideological, world that the right likes to get into. joy, you're shaking your head. they haven't decided to go sky high into the ideology with the old testament or become a more modern party. >> i think you picked the right person to focus on. marco rubio, be seems to be at the crossroads. there's three wings of the republican party, the evangelical right, business wing of the party and then the sort of joe the plumber wing we call the tea party. they now all sort of rushed into the void created by the economic recession with the business wing deciding they wanted one of their own to be president, mitt romney, evangelicals legislating on morals and contraception and abortion after 2010, and then with the tea party saying no, we're going to impose small government austerity on the rest of the country. all three collapsed in this election in 2012. now they have to decide which is strong enough to survive. my personal theory is the business wing was always the strongest and will be the surviving wing and y
it's sandy, but he caught the last break and if there is anybody with a little bit of an advantage, it appears he's got it, ever so slightly. >> that's obama. howard? >> before i came on the air, i checked in with the top guns in both campaigns. the top people. my sense is trying to read between the lines of the e-mails and phone calls, that the obama people are a little more confident right now. the romney people keep harping on pennsylvania, on the idea if they can't win ohio's 18 electoral votes they can substitute it with 20 from pennsylvania. that's why bill clinton is going to pennsylvania tomorrow. i've been told that the president is not going to pennsylvania. in terms of barometers of confidence, the obama people are confident b enough about the flanking maneuver romney is trying in pennsylvania not to bother second the president there. the president will be in ohio tomorrow, which is his center of gravity and has been from the beginning. chuck mentioned demographic reasons. that's the college reason. without ohio and pennsylvania, it is virtually impossible for romney to
